    Question I love music on my player

    Hello guys. Please, help.

    "I love music on my player"

    What does it mean?

    1) I love all the music that is now on my player with no exceptions?
    2) I love most of the music that is now on my player?
    3) I love having music on my player?

    Can "I love the music on my player" be said, if the listener doesn't know which music is on my player or if I have some, but it is just an obvious fact that player has music on it?

    Thanks.

    Re: I love music on my player

    "I love music on my player" means (absent context) that I love having music on my player. (Somebody else might have a different opinion.)

    "I love the music on my player" means I love the music I have on my player.
